This image started as a blown over picnic table with its umbrella which I felt was a good start for an interesting image.
AS you probably know, I enjoy looking down occasionally find the debris there has both great details and lager patterns. The color seems to interfere with the overall criss-cross patterns of the image, so I prefer the black and white image.
As a kid I was told to “Watch where you are going” and I did and still do. Besides not tripping, I always seem to find things that interest me.
I was looking through some fairly recent images and was drawn to the red umbrella and a kind of related shape with the flower.
I enjoy looking both out from and into places through their windows. The patterns and colors are particularly interesting and subtle.
As I entered the supermarket I was greeted by a stack of potato sacks with glorious patterns and colors.
My original intent of this blog was to make myself an assignment to make picture a day and post it. That soon went by the wayside and now I am trying to do that again, at least a little bit. Fall is a great time and the spent hosts leafs are enchanting to me.
When I was in college our Band Director, Hunter Wiley, euphonium player for the New York Philharmonic, would comment on a wrong note which actually would sound better than the right note. So, I do not discard images which are serendipitous “,mistakes”..
This wall is an ideal location for rainy day shooting. The relatively subtle colors and textures seem to be strengthened by the wetness. The shapes of the doors and windows are also interesting for thier patterns.
There are lots of things that are so pleasing in color because of their colors and interacting patterns as well as surroundings. .
If we get far enough out of town the rewards of older working farms are great. I enjoy the colors of some of the subjects as well as the farm implements.
For those of us who are suffering from the heat, Fall is not far away .
Rain on windows and windshields makes a filtered effect as the it splatters and drips down the glass forming a wonderful scrim.
Obviously, the unifying theme is color but the patterns and textures ar also interesting to me. Because of the patterns and textures, I think the images would work well in black and white, also.
These three images kept popping up at me and they are sort of related structurally and by color and they are fun.
